Kids First Words With Phonics – A Nice App for Learning to Read and Spell
Kids First Words With Phonics is a nice iPad app designed to help children learn to read and spell. The app shows students a picture, reads a word to them, then asks the child to drag and drop letter to spell the word they have just heard. The preference settings allow you to specify how many letters the longest words will have, whether or not a child will see hints, specify uppercase or lowercase letter display, and turn the narrator’s voice on or off. The preferences menu also lets you choose whether or not you want the narrator to speak the synthetic phonics of the words that children see in the app.
Kids First Words With Phonics offers 27 animal pictures and names for free. An addition 45 pictures and words can be added to the app through an in-app purchase at a cost of $0.99 (USD).
